Custom Cars

There are many types of custom cars in the automotive industry!  On this, and the following pages, I will explain some of the different types.   In each section you will be able to see pictures that demonstrate each type.  Do you have a Favorite type?  

What is a Custom Car?

A Custom Car is basically a vehicle that has been modified to please the owner in ways that make the car better, or more usable, and especially more stylish for the owner.  The owner will modify things like the body to give the exterior a sleeker look.  One popular exterior modification is to "Shave" the door handles. This is where the builder takes the door handles off of the exterior of the car and welds the remaining holes shut.  The doors would then be opened electronically with a solenoid. 

     The builder might modify the engine to create more power, or install some chrome-plated items to add a little flash under the hood.  Or if the car was intended to be a daily-driver, the owner might make some power-train modifications to give the vehicle better fuel economy.  It really just depends on what your intentions are for the car.

Most car customizers will go all out on their vehicle to create a comfortable, and functional, interior.  This is where the owner will spend most of his time, right?! So why not create a look that is pleasing to him with lots of gadgets (TVs, Radio, Upholstery, etc.) to look at, use, or to make him more comfortable!
